don't do as I do just do as I say

Driving along from Carrefour to the 8th circle I noticed a huge new water feature - 3 large and long waterfalls. Having done a nice job with the trees and landscaping I could not believe this misuse of water. Added to that one can hardly see as it is only visible whilst driving through the underpass.

We are asked by the authorities to save on water and they then turn around and put water features all around the place. T

I think the amount of water used in these public water features is negligible as it's pumped around the feature from a small reservoir not drawing on a continues feed of water. Personally, I like to see them as they give a cooling touch to an otherwise hot day and I can't help but admire the creative forms some of them take. My favourite is the huge round boulder at the intersection near the Khilda petrol station!

I agree with you that seeing water moving whilst on is hot is pleasent. If you have seen the new one at the Mecca St circle you will notice that a rather large amount of water is being used. The point I was trying to make is that the water shortage in Jordan is severe and that those in charge should set an example. This particular feature is hardly visible to anyone. And what has happened to all the others? The one at the Municipality downtown seems to have disappeared. We very rarely see the one at the Fifth circle working and so many of them become dirty rubbish dumps. T
